Making food from scratch typically requires advance preparation, adherence to a recipe, and your third and final genie wish. Save the third wish for more wishes with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a meal for two at Dao’s Tai Pan’s Restaurant (up to a $42.97 value). The meal includes:
- One shared appetizer (up to a $7.99 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $13.99 value each)
- Two drinks (up to a $3.50 value each)<p>
Experienced chefs prepare separate Vietnamese, Chinese, and Thai menus, which can be paired with more than 20 thirst-quenching smoothies and bubble teas. A light, crispy pancake enfolds expertly cooked shrimp and leafy vegetables in the Vietnamese crêpe appetizer, which adds a touch of French elegance to meals without serving soup in a beret. Fried shrimp pâté on sticks of sugar cane imparts a flavorful fiesta, combining satisfying crunchiness with sweet-tooth mollification. Curries, clay pots, and noodle soups dominate the Thai dinner menu, which features beef fondue, a hot pot of thinly sliced beef luxuriating in a vinegar sauce with noodles or steamed rice. Six bubble teas and more than 20 smoothies stand ready to battle tongue-ravaging heat from eating Chinese kung pao shrimp ($8.99) or from failing the final exam at fire-eating school.
Though Dao’s Tai Pan’s Restaurant sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
